with barack obama, number one. and that what mitt romney has to do is convince people that four years from now a mitt romney presidency will be better for their personal lives. they understand on the likability question of which the president beats mitt romney so handily, they're not about to convince all these people suddenly to turn around and say, oh, we like mitt romney more than we like president obama. what they're going to try and do is say you like him enough and he can do the job and he's better able to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did bette
the first time in my adult life-- playing on something michelle obama said years ago-- i'm embarrassed for barack obama." >> warner: i noticed from a graphic of twitter it went in peaks and valleys but there was one particular high point and informs the -- during a discussion about regulation. and it was mostly mitt romney. let's watch that. >> there have been 122 community and small banks have closed since dodd-frank so there's one example. here's another, in dodd-frank -- >> lehrer: do you want to repeal dodd-frank? >> i would repeal it and replace it. we're not going to get rid of regulation. you have to have regulation. there are some parts of dodd frank that make all the sense in the world. you need transparency, you need to have leverage limits for institutions. >> lehrer: well, there's a specific. but -- >> let me mention the other one. >> lehrer: excuse me. >> let's mention the other one -- >> lehrer: let's not. let's let him respond to this specific on dodd-frank and what the governor just said. >> warner: why was that a big moment? >> the reason for the explosion of tweets at
in america. i want to create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. >> obama care is point number one. it is the example number one where he wants to put bureaucrats between you and your doctor, he believes that the government should tell you what kind of insurance you have to have. he believes that government should have a board of people that tell you what kind of care you can receive. my view is we fight for freedom in this country, i do not want an intrusive massive larger debt spending government that crushes the american dream. >> they like to call it obama care, well, let me tell you, i do care. i care about all the young people who are able to stay on their parents' plans now. i care about the seniors who are seeing lower prescription drug costs. i care about folks with pre-existing conditions who can't be denied care now. governor romney has promised that he would overturn obama care on its first day in office. which means -- which means he would kick nearly 7 million young people off their parents' plans. he would make seniors prescription drugs more expensive, yo
obama would give them if they give him another four years. >> romney, they say, will ultimately rise in the polls because of his debate perfo performance. for that small number of voters that haven't made up their minds, has this helped romney? >> very difficult past few weeks, if last night went well for the president you kind of have a hardening of the belief that the race is virtually sealed, out of reach. the debate has ended that discussion and it's going to remind us, move into the conversation, a reminder that the president faces in this debate. mitt romney did had himself some good with those undecided voters and just as importantly energized the he republican base. there's a sense of retooling in the obama campaign, look, incoming presidents often have problems in their first debate. people don't talk to you like that in the oval office. no question the president needs a reset. >> ron brownstein, thank you very much for your wise words of analysis. cnn will reair the presidential debate in case you didn't see it. it will reair the debate at 1:00 pm eastern. >>> a look at oth
capitalizes on it with what he did last night. what is different than four years ago when barack obama took the stage in mississippi he came out with grand ideas about all of us coming together and how we are going to cut the deficit in half and the world will like us again, and how we are going to get out of iraq and afghanistan. guess what, now he's going to run on what he's done over the last four years and there is not a lot he can point to to say that they were successful. that's what got him in trouble last night. if mitt romney does this the next couple of debates and he continues to go out there in the way he did last night and saying, this is how you failed, this is where you failed, this is where it's not adding up, i'm not sure barack obama can really come back with actual facts or figures, because he doesn't have those as time to run on. megyn: simon did you share chris matthews' frustration at the president's performance? >> i may have not been as animated as he was last night. the president didn't have a good night. mitt romney had a good night. megyn: what happened to barack
president obama as a candidate ran on four years ago, was bringing the nation together and yet, last night on the stage, it was mitt romney talking about how he had found bipartisanship with his health care plan and president obama had not with obamacare. >> it's part of the contrast in their records, when you look at governor romney work with a democratic legislature, 87% of the seats in the state house and state senate in massachusetts were held by democrats when he was the governor, and yet they were able to work across the aisle to get things done for the people of massachusetts. they cut taxes 19 times. they balanced the budget and got a rainy day fund and upgraded their credit rating in massachusetts. they brought unemployment down to 5.7%. and that's in sharp contrast. we've had our national credit rating downgraded as a result of president obama's policies. he's not worked across the aisle and we've had unemployment go up as a result of his policies. >> gretchen: although president obama's biggest critique of your candidate is that there simply are not enough details in his plan. s
't anywhere we want it to be. >> no. president -- candidate barack obama promised four years ago, no. but is it better than where we've been for 40 months, yes, as an american i'm celebrating. >> if you're running for office, you want to be on the uptick. you don't want to be going the other way. as long as it's going in the right direction, people are feeling better about themselves. this is good news for obama. and it's good news for america. >> just look at the narrative. wednesday night liberals and democrats were apocalyptic. and today friday these job numbers come out and then you have romney driving the day from what he said last night on fox news repudiating the 47%. and president obama giving two big speeches today, rallies, and he's bouncing up on stage and he's got all kinds of new lines and so on. >> but you guys, you know, as fools gold, you act like one debate is going to change the fundamental dynamics of this race. they were pretty set in beforehand and seldom if ever in history one debate is going to change the fundamental dynamics of a race. >> one may not, but two
in 1988 who was president? ronald reagan. lloyd benson had been in the senate 17 years, dan quayle, 7 years, that was about gravitas and the senior statesman versus the young new guy upstart. this time it's different because barack obama was in his 40's when he became president and even though joe biden is three decades older than paul ryan, that issue is muted a little bit. >> clayton: interestingly in 2008. then candidate biden, vice-presidential nominee at the time had a walk a delicate balance with sarah palin. he had to be respectful of her on the stage and strong a lot of people thought it was a tie at theened of the debate wherever you stand on it want matter, but here is a clip from that, we'll get you to respond to that moment. >> you voted for the war and now you oppose the war, you're one who says, as so many politicians do, i was for it before i was against it or vice versa, americans are craving straight talk. hey, if you voted for it, tell us why you voted for it and you you also said that barack obama was not ready to be command ner chief and i know again you opposed th
in the past few weeks, a sign both parties still think they can win here. president obama has taken a lead in recent polls. still, he is not headed into this election with the same advantage he had in 2008 when he won the state by ten points. two years ago, the republican party chipped away at the democrats lead, and now claim almost 11,000 more registered active voters. mitt romney came in a close second here in the january caucuses, that's four years after he ignored, and lost, the state-- also proof of how campaigning here can make a difference. republicans want to capitalize on that momentum. >> in 2008, the obama campaign had the organizational advantage in iowa. in 2012, republicans have stepped up their game. they had done more by april than john mccain did in iowa by election night in 2008. >> reporter: but political support in iowa doesn't simply rely on the sheer force of campaigning. there are more voters registered without party affiliation in iowa than there are republicans or democrats. many iowans measure the candidates independent of their party. voters like 19-year-old cha
